The Electricity of Vietnam (EVN) has asked the National Power Transmission Corporation to double efforts to put into use a number of power projects as soon as possible.

The projects include the upgrade of the 500kV Nho Quan (northern Ninh Binh province) – Ha Tinh (central province) power line.

The EVN Hanoi was asked to ensure the building progress of the 220kV Chem-Tay Ho power line and the 220kV Tay Ho transformer station.

Meanwhile, the Northern Power Corporation needs to speed up the installation of the 110kV Hiep Hoa-Yen Phong power line, which will supply electricity for the Bac Ninh-based Samsung group’s factories, together with other 110kV lines connecting with the 220kV Than Uyen and Hai Ha transformer stations.

The Southern Power Corporation should ensure electricity access for people in Kien Hai island district, the southern province of Kien Giang .

In January 2015, two turbines of the Mong Duong and Duyen Hai thermal power plants with a combined capacity of 1,162 megawatts were commissioned.

In addition, the capacity of the 220kV transformer stations of Soc Trang, Chau Doc, Phan Thiet, and the 220kV Vinh Tan (northern Bac Ninh province)-Phan Thiet (central Binh Thuan province) power line was increased, well serving local needs.-VNA
